“I know we could’ve done better, which I challenged the O-Line with. I challenged everybody with”

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke about some of the players coming off the PUP list, Deebo Samuel, whether he’s concerned about the offensive line, and much more on Wednesday before practice.

In terms of WR Deebo Samuel, he’s going to be practicing today? What are you expecting to see from him and what does...

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson praised Nick Mullens on Tuesday, but Kyle Shanahan has made it clear that Jimmy Garoppolo is “the guy.” Meanwhile, Brandon Aiyuk is showing some Deebo-esque versatility. Here are the nuggets for today.

Kittle will be a full-go, which is a good sign he suits up Sunday night against the Eagles

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan provided a few injury updates ahead of Wednesday’s practice. Shanahan said quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would not practice on Wednesday, as he’s still battling a high-ankle sprain. The 49ers won’t have Dee Ford, who Kyle said is headed to the injured reserve later this week, Dre Greenlaw, who is battling a thigh...

The consensus from the different outlets is that San Francisco is a top-15 squad.

Despite missing several of the their top players, the San Francisco 49ers put a beatdown on the New York Giants. The Niners swept the Big Apple teams to improve to 2-1 and are now getting ready to take on the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football.

Kyle Posey and Akash Anavarathan explore the 49ers’ blocking issues

The 49ers are supposed to be a running team that uses play-action to gain huge chunks of yards while controlling the clock and dictating the pace of the game. Why then, have they been largely unable to generate much on the ground beyond Raheem Mostert’s explosive plays?

Kyle Posey and Akash Anavarathan took a deep dive into the offensive line issues in this...

Let’s see how this changes every three or four games

We asked Twitter what the San Francisco 49ers’ biggest strength is as a team after three games. Quite a few of you said the schedule, which is logical and tough to disagree with. The 49ers are fortunate to have played both New York teams early in the season as the Niners have battled injury. Could you imagine if San Francisco started the season with a divisional opponent and...

Anatomy of a play: Breaking down Brandon Aiyuk’s fake counter reverse touchdown

Film room breaks down Brandon Aiyuk’s first career NFL touchdown.

Over the last year, the 49ers run game has evolved in ways that head coach Kyle Shanahan has never really been known for. The use of a fullback in his outside-zone running scheme, before 2019, provided ample opportunity for his teams to dominate in the run game by creating favorable angles for the blockers.

But last season, with the best run game coordinator in the league, Mike McDaniel,...

Helm is likely Reed’s replacement

The San Francisco 49ers are bringing back tight end Daniel Helm, who the team waived before training camp, as Jordan Reed is expected to miss six to eight weeks. Helm—who was on Tampa Bay’s practice squad— likely will replace Reed, but I wonder if he replaces rookie Charlie Woerner, who has struggled as a blocker early on this season, on the active roster. I’m not sure how much either of these moves...
